It seems like only yesterday that cyclocross racing was the accessible darling of every blog, hipster, and handbuilder, bound to make competitive cycling a mass-participation sport. Then came the advent of gravel, and everyone forgot about Belgium’s native sport. But us? We haven’t yet forgotten the taste of blood in our mouths on the final run-up of the last lap. What we have wanted to forget? Rolling a tire off the rim in the critical corner right afterward. Cross racing puts unique demands on tires, glue bonds, and traction, some that are afforded only by the ultra-low pressures riders can run with tubulars, and owing to this we set to work creating the ultimate CX racing wheel - the Pinnacle CX. Based on our all-new Pinnacle tubeless rim, we created a tubular version with a 32mm radius rim bed to give perfect edge-to-edge tire gluing. The massive surface area gives enormous adhesion and peace of mind when PSIs are dwindling into the single digits on sloppy race courses, keeping tires from slipping off the rim while offering superb traction in terrible conditions. At 36mm deep, the 400g Pinnacle CX's rim depth offers added aerodynamics and mud shedding you'd need in a cross race, along with plenty of acceleration and stiffness balanced by an offset rim design. The Pinnacle CX set weighs in at 1475 grams built with the Boyd Cycling Quest disc brake hubs.
The Pinnacle CX is a cyclocross weapon. If your idea of fun is riding through mud, snow, and bunny hopping barriers then you need a wheelset that was designed with this in mind. Take comfort in the security of the perfect tire fit as you power through those muddy off camber turns.
The Pinnacle CX wheelset has been ridden to countless national championship titles, and multiple top 10 performances in world championships.
Ideal for cyclocross where running a larger tubular tire at very low pressure gives a major advantage. Want to know how many world cup cyclocross races have been won on tubulars? ALL of them! The Pinnacle CX is not just a repurposed road tubular wheelset, the wide rim bed was designed for cyclocross tires in mind.
